It's time for sketch #10 at Delightful Sketches today. The prize is a fabulous $15 store gift certificate for Embellish It The DT have all made creations using the sketch and the new releases. My card was shown yesterday, but I'll pop it on again today, and go through what I did and used. Dps are MME and K&Co, images are the new releases of Santa Ridley and the fireplace coloured with promarkers, and a little stickles added to the flames. I've added Santa Ridley with silicone to give him a bit of dimension in front of the fireplace. The poinsettia and leaves are by Prima, to which I've added some gold pearls in the centre. Green ribbon is Anna Griffin, gold ribbon from stash. Faux stitching is a stamp, as is the sentiment, which I tried to curve a bit to stamp. All on an A4 card. Hope to see you join us, the challenge will last a fortnight, and you can use any image, it doesn't have to be from Digital Delights, but would be lovely if it was. Please pop by Digital Delights as Wendy is previewing some of her new rubber stamps. The set is called Billy and Maggie Carolers and will be available from Clear Dollar Stamps on November 1st.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
